Make entertaining during the holidays easier, whether you're preparing for a large buffet or an intimate dinner. The solution is simplifying your food preparation with all-in-one bakeware that's stylish enough to show off.
"Hosting holiday meals can be less stressful when food is prepared, cooked and served in bakeware that can go from the oven to the table," said Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton.
Try these tips from Wilton for better holiday serving solutions:
- Make it convenient. Prepare your dishes ahead of time in oven-to-table bakeware and then refrigerate until it's time to cook. On the day of the party, pop your dishes into the oven and then serve. Remember, there's a longer bake time than called for in the recipe if the dish has been in the refrigerator.
- Present with pizzazz. There's no need to collect multiple holiday-themed serving pieces. The neutral color of oven-to-table bakeware coordinates with your table setting, regardless of the season or celebration. Your food takes center stage in unbreakable non-stick metal bakeware that looks like beautiful ceramic.
- Lighten your load. With fewer dishes to clean up, you'll be able to spend more time with your holiday guests.
